The women's roles lack dimension and the bittersweet depth Renoir's later films explored so memorably. Visually, though, this one's gorgeous and extremely fluid.

Very cleverly made and beautifully acted.

Wonderfully moving, with great performances.

All of the performances are close to flawless, but it's Renoir's unseen presense one remembtrs most vividly.

Jean Renoir's first sound feature (1931) and one of his best.
July 11, 2016
the first film to fully embody the naturalistic style and complex social themes that would come to be associated with Renoir's best work

Any discussion of the film's actual story can only be a discussion of how life imitates art. This is a bit of a pity, because 'La Chienne' is actually a tragic, appealingly melodramatic tale of deep humanity.

This brilliantly ironic melodrama is a pivotal work in one of the greatest of all cinematic careers and a significant step in the creation of film noir.
January 5, 2011
The three leads gave superb performances.
August 30, 2006
An often-overlooked highlight of Renoir's momentous career that was well worth the 44-year wait.
